PGL confirms major in Stockholm with audience

Tournament operator PGL has confirmed that the next major will take place in Stockholm from October 26 to November 7 with an attendance of the crowd. The press release is published on the organizers' official website.

The PGL message says that the main reason for holding the major in the capital of Sweden was the lifting by the country's authorities of all restrictions concerning the free entry of participants and mass gatherings of people. Earlier, the company stated that without the assistance of the authorities in the matter of teams coming in and allowing the crowd in the stadium, it could move the tournament to another country.

Playoffs matches will be held in front of an audience on November 4-7 on the Avicii Arena, which has a capacity of about 15 thousand people. Ticket sales will start on September 22.

It should be reminded that the prize money for PGL Major Stockholm 2021 will be $2 million, which is a record amount in the history of Valve events. The amount has been increased due to the cancellation of the major in 2020.
